- transformerless output
- modern small membrane capsule
- modular system
- polar patterns: Cardioid
The condenser miniature microphone system SMS 2000 consists of microphone preamplifier and exchangable capsules with the polar patterns cardioid, hyper cardioid and omnidirectional. Accordingly, the microphones M 200, M 210 and M 270 are available. This allows universal application in professional recording and sound reinforcement.
The newly developed, transformerless circuit design substitutes the previous transformer for a symmetrical output stage. The preamplifier is distinguished by its remarkably low intrinsic noise and output capabilities.
The module system adjusted to optimum reproduction properties allows a particularly clean and colourless sound reproduction. The direction of maximum sensitivity is axial. The studio microphone module system is equipped with a comprehensive range of accessories for widely varying methods of microphone mounting.
lt is possible to activate a 10 dB-preattenuation for handling very high sound pressure levels. A sensitivity reduction for low frequencies can be utilized to suppress the proximity effect. The two switches are sunk into the middle of the microphone.
The microphone are equipped with a standard 3-pin XLR connector fitting to a microphone cable, e.g. C 70. The operation voltage is provided by 48V phantom powering according to the international standards DIN 45 596 and IEC 268-15.
The studio microphone system is available in a satin nickel and black matt finish.
The microphone capsule M 20 is a pressure gradient transducer with cardioid polar pattern which has well-balanced frequency contours in relation to the sound incidence direction and a desirable smooth presence boost in the upper recording range. These properties of the capsule preserve the natural accentuation of soloists and instruments when recording. lt is recommended to use a popscreen for closerange applications and to switch the bass roll-off an the preamplifier on.
